Coronavirus

Governors make a decision on the way forward...

At last night’s meeting of the full governing body, governors discussed the school’s response to the coronavirus situation. The school feel that in order to minimise risk to families and the wider community, parents of any child who has recently returned from  Category 1 and 2 country should complete the online questionnaire to ascertain the best course of action with regard to self-isolation:

Equally, should a child have an immediate family member who has returned  from a Category 1 and 2 country, we would encourage the family to take advice. A new helpline was launched yesterday offering advice for staff, parents and young people:

Phone: 0800 046 8687
Email: DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk
Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)

We understand how distressing this may be to families but we wish to work closely with you in this matter; please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Simms if you have any concerns.

We shall continue to pass on any communications from the Department of Education and Public Health England as they are received.
